The most creative artists are the one who take out their raw ingenuity out in the open. This list of futuristic furniture design concepts has many items like Yin Yang Lounger that display this raw creativity. Furthermore, these furniture aren’t just contemporary, they are unconventional as well. Adding any of them to your home would make it stand out from the others (in a positive way of course). Let us check them out.
Yin Yang lounger
Chinese philosophy has the concept of Yin and Yang — “two opposite yet the same time complementary forces,” united, yet at the same time opposing and fighting each other all the time (one is reminded of the male-female relationship). Now, DEDON has come up with a lounger based on a similar concept. Two separate sofas (pardon my crudity) yet they slide into each other. The lounger is convex and concave-shaped alternately and made from the finest fiber.
It seems to be ideal for love-birds, who want to chirp endlessly in close comfort. It will appeal to all those who ascribe to Chinese philosophy and of course to the Chinese — who, it seems, have all the money nowadays!
